U.S-led forces leaflets to ISIS: ‘Your death is inevitable’
The US-led coalition airstrikes have pounded regime-held areas in eastern Deir Ezzor province, activist said Thursday.
The strikes hit regime bastions in al-Shamiyyah town in the western bank of Euphrates River, activist Taj al-Allow told Zaman al-Wasl.
The US-led coalition have also dropped leaflets on last Daesh pockets in Deir Ezzor province, urging ISIS militants to surrender otherwise their death is inevitable.
The leaflets have also demanded residents of Daesh areas to leave.
More than 3000 civilians have been killed by the US and allied international parties in a year.
Daesh lost most of its territory in Syria last year, but retained some remote desert areas and has attacked the army and allied forces in recent weeks. The coalition also recently restarted its own campaign against the militant group in Syria.
In relevant development, Iraq launched an air strike on a gathering of Daesh fighters in Deir Ezzor, killing members of the militant group who planned cross-border attacks, Reuters reported.
F-16 fighter jets bombed and destroyed an “operations room” where the militants were meeting. Daesh, which once occupied a third of Iraq’s territory, has been largely defeated in the country but still poses a threat along its border with Syria.
